COMMENTS

See comments, references, and links in A075442 = slowest-growing sequence of primes whose reciprocals sum to 1.

a(n) = 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 967, ..., so A225671(2) = 23.

EXAMPLE

Since 1/3 + 1/5 + 1/7 + 1/11 + 1/13 + 1/17 + 1/19 + 1/23 < 1, the first eight odd primes are members. The ninth is not, because adding 1/29 pushes the sum over 1.

MATHEMATICA

a[n_] := a[n] = Block[{sm = Sum[1/(a[i]), {i, n - 1}]}, NextPrime[ Max[ a[n - 1], 1/(1 - sm)]]]; a[0] = 2; Array[a, 14]
